Mayer got 620k ? Wow, does that mean he is the best paid player in Hamilton?

Tokarski got 575,000 while Mayer got 620,000.
But in AHL salary, Tokarski got 80K while Mayer has 125K.

He's only 23. So is Mayer. People need to keep that in mind. Goalies blossom at an average age of 26-28.

Which is a slap in the face to Tokarski. I can see why it took so long to get him signed now. I don't know if he ultimately has NHL potential or not, but he has been a very good AHL goalie and he's still young, I just cannot fathom how the organization so clearly seems to favour Mayer over him.

It can't be very motivational for Tokarski to have come here, played so well, been so clearly superior, and then get the series of putdowns that he has had (not being #3 in the playoffs, then getting a worse contract than Mayer) from the organization. I'd think it would have been wiser for the team to invest the little bit extra in making sure he was happy and highly motivated, it can only be to our benefit if he is. He has been around long enough as a pro that it would seem counterproductive to treat him like a newcomer who has to go the extra mile all over again to earn his spot in the organization, if that's the philosophy.

Yeah, I'm not too sure why organizations are doubtful about Tokarski. His stats say that he has the definite potential to play in the NHL, but then you see things like him being low-balled, not to mention the fact that he was traded for Cedrick Desjardins straight up. Makes you scratch your head.

Especially when Yzerman said something like this after the trade:

Yzerman says basically bringing in Desjardins is about having a better quality guy in the event of injury or call up to Lindback or Garon.

Anyhow, regardless of all that, I hope he eventually gets his proper shot in the NHL. Prefer him over Desjardins in Hamilton.

From Day 1 in junior Tokarski has always had a bit of a quirky, awkward style. Almost a modern day Jon Casey. But he stops pucks.

I think it's hard for NHL folks to get their head around putting their faith in a guy who doesn't seem so athletic or technically gifted. But results are results.

If that's what our management thinks then they're really dumb.

Style doesn't matter if you save the puck.

Indeed. When you look at Brodeur, Thomas or Hasek a couple years ago...

B-bu-but saving the puck doesn't matter if you have character

FINALLY, Dustin Tokarski has come back to Hamilton.....

Only what's important at least for this year. And frankly, even if they think of him now as a backup to the great Mayer, it will change as the year passes by. I just hope that one day, they will go beyond the size and see what Mayer is all about....should be nicknamed Bayer...he gives his coaches so many headaches....

Not sure DT is in the future plans anyway. At this point, Condon might be. But for now, those guys are just stop gaps till Fucale takes charge. Reason why in the upcoming draft, we also have to get another high end goalie.

But good signing that took so much time. We all know why now...Tokarski was really weighing his options and since he had none, he took this really average offer to say the least. Most concerning thing is that seems the Habs couldn't care less if they lost him or not...can't wait for them to realize how valuable he can be and how "the other guy" can't....And if the evaluation comes from the coaching staff, here's another reason to make me doubt them...

I'm with you there. I can't understand why or how they don't see Tokarski as being important to this hamilton squad.
